Grateful Dead Live at Hollywood Bowl on 1972-06-17




Complete Show! - the following is the correct setlist: Set 1: Promised Land, Sugaree, Black Throated Wind, Tennessee Jed, Me and My Uncle, China Cat Sunflower/I Know You Rider, Playing In the Band, Loser, Beat It On Down the Line, Stella Blue, El Paso, Casey Jones - Set 2: Truckin'/The Other One, Ramblin' Rose, Sugar Magnolia, Not Fade Away/Goin'Down the Road Feeling Bad, One More Saturday Night.

There was no encore, they never left the stage before One More Saturday Night. Pigpen played organ only, didn't sing or play harp.

This was recorded from Box 52 which is just left of center. Recorded with a Sony Cassette recorder with Shure Microphone attached. This recording was transferred directly to digital using Audacity. There is about a 5 second drop out on "the Other One", it happened as the original recording was being made. Also a couple of slightly muffled spots from audience obstructions and/or tape degrading, but not too bad for an audience tape.

Note: When I uploaded this, the songs are appearing in the wrong order. It won't let me rename the numbers, sorry about that.

Also Note: Charlie Miller has my master tapes and is working on it, so expect a major improvement in the future!

Probably the best '72 show I've ever heard. God! Why didn't they play like this all the time? Recording slightly cloudy, especially in the 2nd set, but the trained ear will enjoy this immensely. Truckin'/Other One is stunning especially, and I think it's really great that the jams are linked rather than split up into "songs" in stupid record company fashion the way most people do it.

gotta LOVE 1972. Probably the BEST year of the Dead. Anyone who owns Europe '72 will know what I mean. This is a good quality aud recording. China Cat shines!

Subject: Pigpen's final performane/Watergate on the same night a coincidence? Guess again!
Lots of love to Ronald McKernan, a guy who stood out even among a gang of freaks! Muddy Waters recorded a song called "The Blues had a baby and they named it Rock'nRoll" That was Mr. McKernan's life story. Absolutely beautiful performance here, just the plaintiff yet resolute organ riffs. Thank you, Pigpen, for your artistic genius.

I did transfer Dave's masters and my transfer is much clearer than this one. I also pitch corrected it. There were numerous pops and other flaws which I fixed. Should be available today.

I didn't ask for an eta but I figure it ought to be within the next couple weeks or so if we're lucky, that's just a guess. How 'bout it Charlie?
